The borough’s boffins are invited to prove their mettle at the annual Toy Appeal quiz night.

Teams face 10 rounds of tricky trivia at Canning Town charity Community Links, in Barking Road.

The coveted Maureen Allen Challenge Shield awaits the winners, plus a bottle of wine for each member.

“The night has a reputation for being a good night out,” said Community Links life president Kevin Jenkins.

Old guests and new are welcome to challenge reigning champions Newham Blips for the top spot.

The team of Newham Council employees have won six of the last seven quizzes and even scored top marks in several rounds last year.

The event starts at 7pm on Wednesday, December 6.

A table for a team of up to eight members costs £75.
